That is really sad news, especially with all that was coming up over the next few weeks.
That collection really was a must on any self-respecting singer's bookshelf, and will, I'm sure, be as invaluable to the younger singers of today. The sooner all the books are published, the better, although I realise how much work has to go into them.
I didn't know that the notes were not as Frank intended at the time, but it makes me even more determined to get hold of the new editions, quite apart from the fact that the old ones are falling apart.
I hope his family realise how much his work was valued - it may be of some comfort to them in their loss.
